Lord Mayor signs major Declaration on Climate Change

Former Lord Mayor Eibhlin Byrne (2008 - 2009) was one of the first group of Mayors from Europe’s major cities to sign the Eurocities Declaration on Climate Change in Lyon, France recently.  The Lord Mayor joined nine other mayors in making a formal contribution to a Round Table discussion on Dublin’s response to climate change.  

EuroAn image of the Lord Mayor signing the Declarationcities is the network of major European cities. It brings together the local governments of over 130 large cities in 34 European countries.  

The Declaration highlights the essential role played by cities in combating climate change. The signatories to the Declaration are committed to developing energy action plans and implementing measures to tackle climate change. Dublin City Council has already made significant progress in these areas by its adoption of a Climate Change Strategy, higher energy standards in our current City Development Plan and major progress in developing an Action Plan on Energy for Dublin.
